Last quote by John McWhorter

Not all people understand that reviving a language–if one really wants it to live again in anything like the form that it once had–means getting people using it spontaneously in real life, including speaking it to their children. Art, and I would say especially music, is a great way to inculcate this ingrained sense of using the language, with real expressiveness, with the infectiousness of music and its sense of cultural authenticity.feedback
